Netflix, NHMC & Five Organizations Release Inaugural Selections for “Created By” Initiative

The National Hispanic Media Coalition applauds the selection of diverse writers for the Created By Initiative, offering script development deals by Netflix. Out of the chosen writers, three are alumni of NHMC’s writers program, Zoila Amelia Galeano, Jeffrey Nieves and Emily Eslami Nieves. NHMC would also like to congratulate our alumni Diego Moreno who was nominated by the Native American Media Alliance.

“We’re incredibly proud of Zoila, Jeffrey, Emily, Diego, all the writers selected, and Netflix in this inaugural class of the Created By Initiative, helping the industry move forward until representation – across the board – is the rule, not the exception, ” said Brenda Castillo, President and CEO of the NHMC.  “These incredibly talented individuals will not only introduce audiences to authentic Latino storytelling, but also ensure a future where projects from Latino creatives and people of color will always be considered, seen and respected by Hollywood and the world.”
